Uncle Jerry going into the global security biz

+

Reinsdorf and his four partners each have a 20 percent stake in a new limited liability company called SRB2K, according to articles of organization filed last month with the Arizona Corporation Commission. The company is using the name Global Security and Intelligence Strategies as a "placeholder," said Len Sanderson, a Washington-based spokesman for Reinsdorf.

Marvin Miller RIP

"Mr. Miller persuaded major league players to cast aside the paternalism of the owners. He never convinced the owners that they could prosper amid an upheaval of baseball’s economic order — something they would eventually discover — but he outmaneuvered them at every turn."

Best movies of the decade

Miller excluded from HoF (again)

For the idiots who say that the hall of fame is meant for those who played the game, well, it's not. Owners and execs can get in, like Bowie f'n Kuhn, so Marvin Miller should, it's as simple as that.

Williams' head abused at facility

8

Good stuff: "Larry Johnson says in the book "Frozen: My Journey Into the World of Cryonics, Deception and Death" that he watched an Alcor official swing a monkey wrench at Williams' frozen severed head to try to remove a tuna can stuck to it. The first swing accidentally struck the head, Johnson contends, and the second knocked the tuna can loose."

2009 Prospect Duds: Dayan Viciedo

6

Viciedo’s .692 OPS versus right-handed pitchers is cause for concern, as are the scouting reports that focused more and more on his lack of conditioning, which no doubt hindered him at the plate, as well as in the field. He showed worse range than Oakland’s Brett Wallace, widely considered to be a first baseman playing third base (especially based on his range). Unfortunately for Viciedo, he has yet to display enough power to be an asset at first base, and he lacks the mobility for even left field. The Cuban also performed poorly in a small sample size as the designated hitter in double-A, which could be a result of his focus issues.
